The control theory term to >>describe this situation is unobservable. I had similar problems listed here, it seems that one of my inverse matrix has encountered a zero determinent in the early cycles. My code did not check for determinent and went ahead with the gaussian elimination, turn out with numbers near to inf. Does this mean EKF becomes useless if the matrix to be inverted is uninvertible?
